RetVal = Repository("FLAG"EntId, Param1, Param2, Param3, Param4, Param5)


The FLAG method has the following parameters.

entIDentID consists of four elements, which are '*' (asterisk) delimited:
  • Application name
  • Type ID
  • Class ID
  • Entity name
 Methods are executed as follows: if class specific, execute at the class level; if type specific, execute at the type level; otherwise, execute the method.
param1Contents of notes for that entity, accessed by Entity...Notes when an entity is highlighted in the repository outline. A sample entity note is illustrated below:

param2Which flag to set if param4 is automatic. Possible values are:

0 = set recompile flag 1 = set evaluation flag

param3Sub-entity ID
param4Which flags to set. Possible values are:

0 = automatic (see param2 for whether recompile flag or automatic flag is set) 1 = set evaluation flag 2 = set recompile flag 3 = set evaluation flag and recompile flag

param5whether or not the flag setting should apply to entities using this entity. Set to 1 if this is desired.
